Election Update: Nevis voters express concerns on polling day
|Voting in Nevis|
ZIZ News…Jan 22, 2013 — It was not all smooth sailing for the electoral office on Nevis’ polling day.
Some polling stations in constituency number two did not have an updated voters’ list which led to some voters being turned away. A new list arrived later in the morning and the rejected voters were given a chance to vote.
Some voters said this was unacceptable.
Concerned Citizens Movement (CCM) candidate Mark Brantley said he was also concerned about people from St. Kitts coming over to Nevis to vote and he feels some are doing so illegally.
Meanwhile, supporters of the Nevis Reformation Party also told ZIZ News that people coming over from St. Kitts to vote is a concern, however, they say some who are voting are among the over 200 names that were re-instated on the voters list.
